Dr Melita Ash BSc (Hons), DClinPsy, CPsychol

Percuro Psychology was established by Dr Melita Ash, Clinical Psychologist. Dr Ash is a HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist Chartered with the British Psychological Society.

She gained her Clinical Psychology Doctorate with Staffordshire University and has extensive experience both within the NHS and Independent Sector working with children, young people and their families with a range of difficulties.

Dr Ash has a specialist interest in working with families impacted by trauma experiences.

This includes supporting parents who experienced early complex trauma themselves, parents impacted by being apart from their child, children who are ‘looked after’ and parents whose family journey has been different to what they had expected due to their child having additional needs or disabilities.

Dr Ash works one to one with parents and/or children, and dyadically with parent(s) and their child together.

Dr Ash works using a range of models and approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), systemic approaches, and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).
